The Cincinnati Bearcats added a potential weapon to their 2017 recruiting class when Dillard (Fort Lauderdale, FL) running back Jordan Merrell chose to commit on Monday.
Merrell chose the Bearcats over Florida Atlantic, Marshall, and Temple.
Although he is still two years away from putting on a collegiate uniform, it is never too early to start piling up talent for the future.
This past season, the Bearcats ranked No. 72 in rushing yards per game with 156.5 yards per game.
Merrell is ranked as a two-star prospect according to Rivals.com.
